The Entrance to The Wentworth By The Sea

A warm, inviting entrance to a grand hotel.  The pavers and the covered entrance to the Wentworth By the Sea make guests feel stately and at home as they arrive to check in.  The scene takes on a different feel in the evening, more cozy than the clean and stately white lines of the architecture during the day, though it’s elegant in all settings.

Out for a Sail

There’s nothing like being out on the water at sunset.  I have a newly found appreciation for sailing, after enjoying a gorgeous afternoon out on the water in Saint Lucia.

This shot was actually taken from the land at Great Island Common – as I looked out into the harbor and enjoyed seeing the sailboats cruise around in the late afternoon sunlight.  There’s a nice simplicity in the coastal beauty…and the opportunities to get out and enjoy the ocean/rivers/etc. is the icing on the cake.

Sunset at Whaleback Lighthouse

As sunsets earlier and earlier each day, it becomes more important to strategize when heading out for a shoot.  I was running out of time way too quickly after going out for a run with the Mrs., but still couldn’t pass up the opportunity to get some of the incredible late day light.  My first thought was to head to Great Island Common for a close-up of Whaleback Lighthouse and Portsmouth Harbor Lighthouse.  With the 100mm-400mm lens, it would be a treat to have the option to shoot a bit closer.  I decided to use a long exposure to really bring out the richness of the coastal air and the movement in the Atlantic Ocean.  I’m very pleased with the shot – a serene capture of a beautiful seacoast landmark.
